I’m quite new to all of this and I’m just working on a “little” summer project to see what I can accomplish—so I apologize if I ask silly questions.
I’ve been trying to test it out on two repositories, the first one just contains the CodePen files (if you look at my profile, it’s called test), and the second one (link to actual repository) is more similar to what I want to accomplish, with the CodePen “customer service” chatbot in the corner of the website… I’m still working things out with the site so I know it’s ugly atm.
Am I doing something wrong when uploading the files or am I missing something? Is there a better way to go about doing what I want to achieve?
I pulled an all-nighter last night trying to figure this out before passing out at 7am finally… but I feel completely stuck
I would really appreciate some help!
I can only post two links as a new user but let me know if you need more info!
I guess I should’ve been more specific, sorry. I am currently using GitHub Pages, and when I upload the CodePen files to the repository, the CodePen files don’t seem to be appearing on the site (please let me know if that doesn’t make sense ).
Thank you! I will try only uploading the dist folder, not the src folder and let you know if I continue having issues . Also, thank you for the tip as well—I am quite new to all of this so everything and anything is appreciated
If you want the source and build to live inside the same repo most people use a gh-pages branch for the build and tell GitHub Pages to use that branch for the site. You can try creating a new branch that only contains the dist folder content and then if you look at the image you posted there is a dropdown where you can change to that branch.
I don’t really use GitHub pages very often, it isn’t very user-friendly. I’m almost positive it is intentionally kept like that to avoid it getting used by more people (static web serving isn’t as cheap if you have a million users).
Within this repo (mindsupportai) I also tried uploading just the contents of the dist folder separately/individually (i.e., not being contained within the dist folder) which worked for the ‘test’ repository, (thank you again, by the way!) but not in this repo—the index.html file in the mindsupportai repo for the webpage is replaced with the CodePen/dist folder index.html file.
In order to have them both on the same page, should I merge the .html files? Or if rename the index.html file for the chatbot (the index.html file within the dist folder) to something like bot.html would both .html files be on the same page?
